Looking for Movie Title

3 posts in this topic

I'm looking for a movie title [haha obviously] and all I have to go on is what I remember from the movie. The movie itself is in black and white, so it makes me think it is prior to the 1950's but I could be mistaken.

 

A rich guy comes into this smaller town for a business meeting [could be a business party] and is sitting in traffic for a long time, though he's in a rush. The main actress comes walking down the street and he asks her for help several times before she concedes. She accompanies him to this party/meeting and they get completely drunk. 

 

In the middle of the night, they've decided [in their drunken stupor] to get married. The next morning they wake up in his car, freaking out because they don't know what's going on, or who each other are. The rich guy takes his new wife back to his city and has to explain to his family AND his girlfriend/fiance what happened. During the trip back to the city, they get into arguments, [typical "I hate you but in the end I'll fall in love with you" storyline] and at one point are sharing a cottage room but the guy puts up a curtain to maintain privacy. 

 

He makes a deal with his wife; after six months, they'll get divorced and everything will go back to normal for them both. During the six months, she's practically a prisoner in their home/apartment, and she's not supposed to talk to anyone, except him. However, at the end of the month turns out he is falling in love with her.  

 

I watched this movie on TCM, 6+months ago, and have been looking for it ever since.

It sounds like "Small Town Girl", a 1936 movie with Robert Taylor and Janet Gaynor.  He is a young, wealthy doctor on his way back to Boston after going to the Yale-Harvard football game at Yale.   Here is the IMDB synopsis.

 

 

  • Kay is a girl living in a small rural town whose life is just too dull and repetitious to bear. One night, she meets young, handsome, and rich Bob Dakin, who asks her for directions while drunk and then proceeds to take her out on a night on the town. Kay likes the stranger, and when the drunken Bob decides that they should get married, Kay hesitates little before consenting. The morning after the affair, Bob, once sober, regrets his mistake. His strict and upright parents, however, insist that the young couple pretend marriage for 6 months before divorcing, in order to avoid bad publicity. Bob resents Kay for standing in the way of him and his fiancée, Priscilla, but Kay still hopes that he'd have a change of heart.
